OG&E is no longer pursuing the idea of developing a wind farm on the Cooper Wildlife Management Area near Woodward.
“We heard from folks in that area and sportsmen and even OG&E employees who had concerns about it,” said Brian Alford, spokesman for OG&E.
Alford said OG&E has many opportunities for wind development on private land in northwest Oklahoma.
Still, state wildlife commissioners plan to go ahead with a March 12 public meeting in Woodward concerning wind power on wildlife management areas .
David Riggs, chairman of the state wildlife commission, said public input is needed on the issue and encourages everyone to attend.
